Hi guys! So today I will start to share some of my Peru travels. 😊 For this post, I’ll start with Lima, Peru. I only spent two full days there, which I think was sufficient time to see the city. I had an early flight from Santiago (5am which meant I needed to be at the airport by 3am, ouch!) and arrived around 9am. I … Continue reading Lima, Peru

Hello world! I just got back to my hotel in Phuket after a nice two day trip in Bangkok! The quick trip went by too fast as expected… I was there to see the city and to compete in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) tournament.
